On their fourth LP Delta, Mumford & Sons are yet again inoffensive and as approachable as they always were. A cohesive effort, but one that lacks any real substance.
by John Tindale After rocketing to fame in the last half decade and picking up awards on both sides of the Atlantic, Mumford & Sons are without doubt one of the biggest bands on the planet.
